Somehow this has been off my radar until the last week or so, got quite excited that I could pick this up by Friday as I loved the old games.

From reading the initial reports on Neogaf it appears the game is totally broken and requires a day 1 update double the size of the game for it to even run properly. The graphics look terrible and the levels appear to have been designed with the own create-a-park editor included with the game.

Despite all the terrible first impressions I might still pick this up, anyone else planning to?

There's rumours that it started off as a mobile game but eventually became a full price premium game which wouldn't surprise me.

All they had to do was charge 15-20 quid and release as a Live/PS Network download and most faults would have been forgiven I think. They have gotten the release model all wrong for this game.

The progression from adding a manual in 2 and then a revert in 3 along with improving graphics and bigger parks to skate in with more goals meant they just kept getting better.

 

It probably helped that at 14-15 I was the right age to just spend all my time playing them but they were great games. I kind of want that again even if it is a broken mess.

It's the culture of patching games.

It seems to have become acceptable to release games that are genuinely unfinished because it can all be fixed with a patch later on.

Yup, seems it is the modern way. It really frustrates me too. I still haven't forgiven DICE for BF4.
